Reading Quizzes during lock down
During lockdown we are keen for the children to keep reading and completing their linked quizzes. If your child has finished their reading book please encourage them to complete the quiz online on the website below
If your child needs a reminder of their login please get in touch with the Year 5 team at email@example.com and we will endeavour to help.
If you need a book to read, there are many books available online at Oxford Reading Owls. Logins were sent by text to parents recently. If you can't remember this please just ask.
Happy New year to all of Year 5!
We hope you have had a good break, and are ready to get going with our online learning!
Our current topic is SPACE
What do you already know about space? What would you like to learn?
The order of the planets is as follows: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
But there are so many questions about our Solar System that you could begin to think about:
What are each of the planets made of?
How did they originate?
Do they move?
We know there is life on earth, but are there life forms on other planets?
Can you come up with any more questions about our Solar System? Can you answer any of those questions by doing a little research?

"So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install a lovely bookshelf on the wall." – Roald Dahl
Use these photographs of your classroom displays to support your writing. You could save the images to your device and have a look at them when you are set a writing task.
Can you incorporate any new vocabulary?
Can you figure out the spelling of a difficult word using your phonics knowledge?
Can you suggest anything to add to our displays that may be helpful in the future?
We will be doing some work on fractions this term - how could this display help you?
Could you make your own fraction wall?
Next time you share something (cake/toast/sweets/pencils etc) can you work out a fraction to represent how you have shared it?
Do your research - what is an 'equivalent' fraction?
